Hello everyone. Up in our Canadian office we decided to hold a “garage makeover” contest. We asked employees to send in pictures of their “messy” garage and tell us why they needed a makeover with the Rubbermaid FastTrack® product line. The winner would receive free; design consultation, product and installation from their friendly Canadian marketing department.
We received a lot of creative and compelling entries but after careful deliberations we finally settled on one of our workers from the Mississauga manufacturing plant. As you can see from the picture….her garage was quite a mess.
It had stuff everywhere which made it difficult to find things and prevented her from parking her car inside. She had a lot of tools, paint supplies and a variety of other items that made the room scream ‘chaos.’
After a quick consultation we knew right away that she needed to take advantage of the new FastTrack® Cabinet line. Against her back wall we set up the tall unit, three top cabinets and then two base units with pull-out shelves. This way she got to hide all kinds of objects in the cabinets and still keep some frequently-used ones accessible in the cubbies.
In addition to those benefits, the cabinets hang on the FastTrack® rail which made it easy to level despite her non-level floor (as is the case in most garages) and will allow her to sweep underneath to keep things tidy.
Needless to say she was very excited about our progress. She loved fact that the cabinets both organized and hid everything giving a clean look and a sense of calm to the formally hectic garage. In the next installment I’m going to take everyone through what we did on the adjacent wall with the FastTrack® rail and other accessories….you won’t recognize the finished product.
What do you think of the makeover so far? Would that be a contest you’d be interested in entering?
